Youth Verification Challenge
Think you can spot fake info? We’ve got a challenge for you....
Welcome to the Youth Verification Challenge@ Here, you’ll hone your investigative skills, learn from experts and forge alliances in a competitive battle for facts.
Who can join? Anyone aged 15-24 with a thirst for knowledge.
The challenge spans several months from April to September 2022, and consists of four stages of activities called “chapters” that get progressively harder. Youths will also have the opportunity to gain insights from professional fact-checkers and learn about their work.
The first two chapters can be solved individually, but the third will require youths to team up.
In the first chapter, youths will be given an online tutorial on basic fact-checking before solving some live quizzes on set dates and times. Youths who complete six out of the eight live quizzes will be eligible for some Google giveaways.
More information about the other chapters will be released in due time.
Registration for the first chapter of the challenge begins today (Mar 31). Those interested can register here by Apr 16.
